    Need Muffler thoughts

    Hi All, Well things are picking up speed and we need to decide very quickly what mufflers to use for our exhaust so we can get that info back to Fran. The desire is to have the exhaust exit through the back of the race-tail and we're looking for as quiet a ride as possible. Any thoughts on...

    ISIS - Going beyond standard in a small way

    Taking a look at the updated ISIS manual, we wondered how we'd facilitate an interior light that comes on when entering or approaching the vehicle. Thought about maybe feeding something from the parking light input, which is configured to trigger from the remote, but I'm not sure under what...

    Steering Wheel Adapters

    Transaxle mounting

    Hi all, In anticipation of the transaxle shipping, I've been looking around for pictures of how it is attached at the rear of the SL-C chassis. I've seen some Ricardo pictures, but no Porsche pics that clearly show how it attaches. I'm assuming it attaches to the crossbrace in some similar...

    New to SL-C: PartII

    The journey continues. As mentioned before, I'm interested in building a street-going exotic. Looked at another mfgs offering in the same space and wasn't completely satisfied, so I'm now looking at an SL-C. I see that a fair number of cars have been sold (50+), many (maybe most) of which...

    New to the world of the SL-C
